Pushing a String, the Border between Classical and Quantum Physics


SHOW MORE


A century ago a Dutch scientist, Paul Ehrenfest, hypothesized that at the border between the quantum and classical worlds the two sets of laws should match. Evidently, in the simple example of a string pushed across a table top they do not! Why they are different reflects a little of the angst of the quantum world.

Heads or tails is passe. If you are a betting sort of a person, instead of flipping a coin, string pushing should be your fancy. Strange as it may seem, the border between the classical and quantum world is only as far away as a string pushed across a table top.
